A path-oriented channel allocation management approach is introduced for the emerging high-bandwidth fiber optic star networks. In the proposed approach, the transmission channel of the source node and the reception channel of the destination node are synchronized at the central switching node, creating a virtual path for packet communication between any two nodes. The number of virtual paths t
